  • Trading Companies With Split Personalities by Anthony Trongone

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...When the regular trading session gains momentum, is the market more likely to produce additional gains? Here's how the companies in the QQ Q Q perform during regular trading sessions versus overnight trading sessions. Although seven years have passed since then, the trades based on my two 2004 articles about the advantages of taking a long position in the overnight session are still delivering attractive profits.

  • Bear Market Survival Kit by Anthony Trongone, PhD, CFP, CTA

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Bear Market Survival Kit by Anthony Trongone, PhD, CFP, CTA Any system can produce stellar results when it suggests taking a position in the same direction of a trending market. But what do you do when the market quickly changes direction? Few if any trading systems work across all economic environments.

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Situational Trading by Anthony Trongone, PhD, CFP, CTA How do you know the markets are beginning to recover? D uring periods of downslides, many cautious investors remain on the sidelines until signs of recovery emerge. Fortunately, trading activity can spot the beginning of a recovery. Sometimes, however, it can be a challenge; in the past several years, a variety of trending landscapes have presented themselves, making that hunt something of a trial. Sometimes we do ourselves a disservice by including all the different trading patterns that have popped up into the same study. The days n...

Discover how you can find them and take immediate action in the e-mini NASDAQ 100. The commodities markets are notorious for their price fluctuations. Still, there are occasions when they appear directionless. But after experiencing two hours of relatively narrow price movements, does it offer us a (profitable) trading opportunity? Let's take a look, confining our analysis t...

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 24:6 (44-47): Trade The Chart, Not The System by Anthony Trongone, Ph.D., CFP, CTA This is why you need to constantly monitor the performance of your trading system. Changing economic conditions can affect the performance of any trading system. Therefore, developing the discipline to periodically monitor the performance of your systems becomes a constructive exercise, one that can increase profits or prevent loss. The proactive trading system (referred to as "GIA," which stands for "generating interactive assets") is a successful strategy for taking a position 60 mi...

  • Trading In The Middle Zone by Anthony Trongone

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 24:12 (32-36): Trading In The Middle Zone by Anthony Trongone Having trouble trading at the start of the day? This strategy will help you find your trading spot. There are many articles about entering the market at the open; there are many articles about entering the market toward the close. Few articles, however, focus on trading during the middle portion of trading, which I'll call the "middle zone." This is unfortunate because this less glamorous time frame (10:35?14:55 Eastern time) represents two-thirds of the overall trading day. Although the opening of the trad...

  • Overnight Trading by Anthony Trongone, Ph.D.

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Overnight Trading by Anthony Trongone, Ph.D. Trading that occurs after the regular trading session can dictate future action. Here's how you take advantage of this information. Many readers wrote to me about my article in the January 2004 STOCKS & COMMODITIES.

  • Trading In A Sideways Market by Anthony Trongone

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Stocks & Commodities V. 22:12 (22-27): Trading In A Sideways Market by Anthony Trongone When the markets are trading in a narrow range, you are likely to become susceptible to emotional trading. But if you follow the emerging patterns of a sideways market, you can trade successfully.
